Carbon Capture and Sequestration has become an important technology to comply with the CO2 reduction targets set by the EC. However CCS has the drawback that the electrical efficiency of the coal fired power plant will drop significantly. To overcome this drawback, one has to increase the base efficiency of the power plant or increase the biomass co-firing share as this is a CO2 neutral energy sou ...

"The EU Council of Ministers held 8 & 9th march 2007 examined theses issues and agreed: “Renewable energy will cover at least 20 % of the EU’s energy demand by 2020”, amongst others. Wind power can make the most important contribution to these targets, if sufficient emphasis is established on technological R&D and market development. Because of the current European scenario and its forecasted evol ...
